Industrial automation in the pharmaceutical industry involves a wide range of inspections and measurements, such as quality checks on the printing of pharmaceutical instructions, identification of barcodes and characters on pharmaceutical packaging as well as quantity checks on the granulation of tablets. The common features of the pharmaceutical industry are the continuous mass production and the high quality requirements for the appearance of the products.
The competition between today's pharmaceutical companies no longer allows even 0.1% of defects to exist. Machine-vision inspection is more stable, more efficient and less costly than manual inspection, avoiding a range of problems. Meanwhile, the inspection technology is highly accurate, the system is easy to operate and multiple inspections can be completed in one device.
BOX introduces machine-vision technology into actual production to improve production efficiency and enhance product quality.
complete application solution for pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.
BOX's SMART VISION offers a full range of exterior inspection and identification as well as product sorting solutions during pharmaceutical and packaging inspection.

The SMART VISION system is mainly installed on top of the production line conveyor belt and requires no manual intervention. The sensor control triggers a high-precision industrial camera to take pictures, which in conjunction with a suitable lens and light source provide clear images of the production date, production batch number and expiry date of the product. The image acquisition unit uploads the image to the industrial control computer, where the built-in intelligent software and algorithm unit analyses the image precisely and gives the detection results. The display unit and human-machine interaction terminal can provide data statistics, quantification of detection results, attribution analysis and report printing services.
SMART VISION guarantees a high qualified rate
Pharmaceutical instruction/labels appearance defect detection system can be used to inspect the appearance of all printed materials in the pharmaceutical industry such as box labels, instruction manuals, certificates of conformity and labels. It is an alternative to manual inspection for missing prints, misprints or color differences, identification of batch numbers, production dates and expiry dates as well as OCV determination. The software is equipped with statistical and attribution analysis functions such as defect type statistics, defect location statistics, effective capacity monitoring, etc., as well as functional modules such as parameter setting, operation rights setting and report printing, according to customer requirements.
Detecting system of production date, production batch number and expiry date
The detecting system of production date, production batch number and expiry date is based on machine vision technology and is used in automated production to detect and identify the information on the outer packaging of products. It automatically and intelligently identifies and detects the date information in just a few seconds on the conveyor belt without human intervention.
Dimensional measuring systems
The tabletop dimensional projector is designed for basic level measurements and enables fast, highly accurate, non-contact measurement of geometrical parameters such as length, angle, solitaire, diameter and radius of objects. It is a cost-effective off-line, tabletop dimensional projector, especially suitable for the measurement of small dimensions, small surfaces with high repeatability.
Defect detection system for injection moulding of pharmaceutical materials
The system can detect defects (lack of glue, sharp edges, scratches, scuffs, dragging, shrinkage, lack of material, floating, etc.) in the mouth, body and bottom edge of pharmaceutical injection moulded transparent cups, and count the defects detected. The statistics can be categorized according to the different locations of the tested products, alerting the customer to the seriousness of the defects and thus helping to improve the production process and the quality of the production.
